Grants to USA community-based organizations to encourage the participation of women in apprenticeship programs. Funding is intended to increase the presence of women in skills training programs to prepare them for employment in those fields. Programs should facilitate retention of women in these industries.
Organizations applying must provide one or more of the following types of technical assistance:
- Developing pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship, or nontraditional skills training programs to prepare women for those careers;
- Providing ongoing orientations for employers, unions, and workers on creating a successful environment for women to succeed in those careers; and
- Setting up support groups and facilitating networks for women to improve their retention.
This grant is intended to provide technical assistance to employers and labor unions to encourage employment of women in A/NTO. Non-traditional occupations are those occupations in which women account for less than 25 percent of all persons employed in a single occupational group, and apprenticeable occupations are occupations that are specified by industry, and which must:
- Involve skills that are customarily learned in a practical way through a structured, systematic program of on-the-job supervised learning;
- Be clearly identified and commonly recognized throughout an industry;
- Involve the progressive attainment of manual, mechanical, or technical skills and knowledge; and
- Require related instruction to supplement the on-the-job learning.
Applicants may propose to provide technical assistance to support women’s participation and success in the full range of industries in which women are traditionally underrepresented or disproportionately concentrated in the lower-wage occupations. Such industries include but are not limited to: advanced manufacturing, energy, healthcare, information technology, and transportation.
